Trademark Advice and Main Concepts
Juggler was one of the first dating coaches to advocate a more natural style, less dependent on scripted lines and more on principles and techniques that people could keep in mind and use while allowing their natural personality to shine through. As time went on the little scripted material and techniques that he did advocate were dropped and now the system that he teaches is very elegant and quite simple.

Early techniques that were introduced into the dating-advice community were SOI's (Statement Of Intent) where you explicitly state your romantic or sexual interest due to some unique trait or behavior of the woman you are interested in. Another famous Juggler technique is the vacuum. A way of putting the onus on the woman to open up and contribute to the interaction. Overall Juggler's method is based around creating an intimate vibe, deep rapport on a wide range of topics while gaining compliance from the woman (getting the woman to put effort into the interaction).

Personal Quotes
“Putting across a warm vibe is the first step towards being accepted by a strange woman”. “Your greatest power as a pick-up artist is your ability to focus as woman entirely into the moment with you”. “But being a pick-up artist does not require spectacular lines. It requires using focusing techniques to hook a woman into a two-way relationship”. “You prompt here to make an effort > She makes an effort > You reward her with your intent > You move the relationship further towards a sexual or romantic outcome”. “The proper timing to move through the many points toward a sexual or romantic encounter is on her high points – when she says something insightful or makes an effort”. “Picking up women is like playing a game of poker. (…) Her money is her efforts, words and creativity”. “...when you amplify your expression and perform your words with commitment you convince her that you are focused on what you are talking about. This not only helps her become involved in a natural dialogue but it demonstrates that you are a man who is at ease around attractive women”. “Appearing confident is not about expressing confidence. It is about confidently expressing everything”. “Portray yourself as a desirable man who is interested in the unique qualities of a woman and not generically interested in women”. “A pick-up artist finds ways to consistently enjoy himself in the field. That keeps him motivated and in the long run makes him the best pick-up artist he can be”.


Personal Life

Before Juggler became involved in the pick-up scene he was working as a comedian and street performer as a juggler and escape artist, which is how he came up with his pseudonym. He became involved in the pick-up community in the early 2000's and from the start offered a quite different perspective than was prevalent at the time.

In the late 2000's he started refocusing his Charisma Arts (formerly Charisma Sciences) on a broad range of conversational and social skills to both men and women. He was married in 2007 but separated and divorced in March 2009.

Wayne Elise currently lives in San Francisco.

Pickup Artist Career

Juggler was one of the first PUA's to advocate a more natural approach to pick-up, focusing on some broad techniques such as a genuine and interested vibe, gaining compliance, creating rapport and making statements of intent rather than focusing on what to actually say. He was featured in the Game by Neil Strauss in which he wrote a chapter about meeting Neil and advising him to try being more in the moment and making the seduction process more mutual.

In 2006 Charisma Arts was featured in a Channel 4 Documentary in which Juggler and Johnny Saviour take 3 students who are having trouble meeting and dating women and teach them how to improve their success using Juggler's method.

Since Juggler's method is very natural and mainly based around gaining compliance it is also applicable in non-seduction settings. In the late 2000s Juggler expanded his work-shops and seminars to teach both men and women conversational skills that are applicable in all areas of life.

Juggler (Wayne Elise)'s Credentials & Experience

TD (Owen Cook) said of Juggler in 2003: “I agree with EVERYTHING that Juggler says in terms of his METHOD. I feel that its a strong method with few flaws - for guys who have FUNDAMENTALS down. I DISAGREE with what Juggler says about being genuine, as it does not cause problems for me - nor do I think that anything that I do is not genuine”.

Juggler is one of the few pick up artists who got married. However, he divorced his wife, Marie, in March 2009. Below some photos of them together.
